Should I extract my wisdom teeth?
There are certain signs that you need to pay attention to know if you need to extract them. The first one is pain in your teeth and jawline. When the wisdom teeth are growing sideways it impacts other teeth. This is what causes that sensation of pain and being uncomfortable. If you feel this often you should visit a dentist soon to see if that the case. For that a panoramic X-rays will be performed to see the current state of your mouth.
Other patients cannot feel the pain in their teeth so if you see your bite is different then that is a sign. If you bite feels weird and out of place then you should go to see a dentist too. In my personal case, I saw that my teeth were crowding together. It was just one tooth falling back out of nowhere. I visit my dentist and confirmed my wisdom teeth were impacted.
However not all patients have to extract their wisdom tooth. Sometimes theirs have enough space to grow. The other condition is that they grow onwards and not sideways. To ensure that the same principle is applied, you need x-rays that confirms your teeth are out of danger. It is never a good idea to leave it be. Another thing that it could happen is that they do not grow out completely. In this case the dentist has to cut the gums to let the teeth grow complete.
Otherwise food debris accumulates in the gums and it tends to infect easily. That is way it is important to get checkups with a dentist, it saves money and problems. Now let’s see when it is a good time to extract them.
